Developed by Firaxis Games, Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Gods & Kings enhances the Civilization V experience by adding new civilizations, leaders, units, technologies and more, as well as the return of religion and espionage. Spanning the breadth of human civilization, the Gods & Kings expansion pack allows players to found the first Pantheon of the Gods and spread religion across the world as well as deploy spies in enemy cities to form allies and steal technology.
Sid Meier’s Civilization V: God & Kings takes players through time as they engage in new quests and global competitions, interact with new types of city-states, and master exciting new systems for land and naval combat. Nine new civilizations, each ruled by a new leader; nine new wonders; three original scenarios; and dozens of new units, buildings, technologies and resources have also been added, offering even more ways for players to expand their empire on their quest to rule the world.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
